Like other countries, Mexico is struggling with the effects of climate change and the impact of changing weather patterns, creating big challenges for cities and economic sectors.


The cooperation between the Netherlands and Mexico initially started on the water issue in the state of Tabasco. The cooperation has intensified, shifting towards an integrated water plan including flood protection, coastal protection and resilient cities.

NWP is involved in Mexico because it is one of the priority countries of the Partners for Water programme of the Dutch government. Within the framework of this programme, NWP coordinates the Country Platform and organises trade missions and conducts market studies. It also represents the Dutch water sector in its advisory role for the Dutch Government on the collaboration with Mexico on water management. Want to know more about the developments in Mexico? Please contact Janett Tapia.

Sector studies: Navigating opportunities in the Mexican water sector

The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and the Dutch Embassy in Mexico, in cooperation with the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature, and Food Quality and the Partners for Water Delta Light Team Mexico, have conducted two sector studies to help identify opportunities for the Dutch water sector in Mexico. The studies focused on two key water management topics:

  • water management in Mexican agriculture and;
  • urban and industrial water (publication in August)
